Just wanted to say how grateful I am that you and yours are okay! Boy, howdy, you sure do have some scary adventures!
All the best,
Glad you were all safe. January before last, water got within 30 yards of our house here in the Brisbane suburb of Fairfield, when so much was flooded and so many drowned, so we, too, were lucky. Now we say we live in Fairfield Heights. Thanks for being such a good writer/story teller.
